A Dreidel (Dreydle) Song

Dray-del or Dri-del?

Well, it depends upon which language you’re speaking!

In Yiddish, it’s called a Dreydle, and the first syllable rhymes with “hay.”

In English, it’s called a Dreidel, and the first syllable rhymes with “high.”

In Hebrew, though, this little spinning top is called a Sevivon! (se-vee-von”)

Whichever way you say it, it’s great fun!
